Germany head coach Han Abbing
“Dominican Republic played a great game against tough opponent, especially the libero (Brenda Castillo) she demonstrated the level in court as she did many functions, and maybe she is the best in her position in this Championship. Our tactics had some problems but we could change our tactics at the end of each set to win the crucial points. I’m happy because our plan runs according to our training today”.
Germany captain Sarah Petrausch
“I’m very happy to win this hard match. Dominican Republic is good team and played hard game. Our blockers dominated. In addition the team play great defensive match. Now our team needs one more step to advance to the Final Four, that is our goal”.
Dominica Republic Head coach Wagner Pacheco
“We lost the chance to win both the second and third set which were nearer to us.  We had the game to our side, but we did not manage to execute. Now we must begin the analysis of Turkey team before our meeting tomorrow which will be a qualification match to the semifinal. I am happy with my players who have demonstrated that it is possible to play this standard. Congratulations Germany, this team is one of the favorites to win the championship”.
Dominican Republic Captain Niverka Marte
“Congratulations to Germany, we tried our best to win the game, but we failed at the key moments. We are calm now to concentrate on the next match against Turkey. I know we had to play mentally in some periods of the match but it was our style”,
